Eligibility Criteria

There is no age limit for BITSAT 2019. Students need to have passed their 10 plus 2 equivalent from CBSE or State Board examination. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and English are mandatory subjects. In their HSLC exams, they need at least 75 percent aggregate in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics/Biology and a minimum of 60 percent in each subject. Board toppers in respective boards are given direct admission to the programme of their choice, irrespective of BITSAT scores.



 Split your syllabus 

Break down the syllabus into components and categorize them into levels – difficult, medium, and easy. Once you do that, you will understand where you stand in the larger picture, where to start and where you need to focus.

Create a plan 

Have a plan of strategy. Sit down and invest time in coming up with a schedule so that you know beforehand what you will be studying each day. Track your progress according to the schedule.  

 Utilize time 

Make the most of your time. If you think you are not making much progress in your schedule, use that time wisely. Sleep, go out for a swim/walk/run. Come back and then resume your study.  Have a routine. Study for a fixed number of hours every day. Don’t overdo and study 12 hours one day and sleep all day the next.

 Best books 

Have the right books in place, before you start preparation. Go online; look at what people who have come out with success in BITSAT have to say. Listen to them and get your material. Go for books that explain the concepts with examples, and have little to no errors. Your best resource library is your NCERT syllabus. They explain all the concepts and include illustrations and problems sets at the end of each section to fortify what you have learned.

 Maintain notes 

Along with your schedule, maintain notes of all the topics you cover. You will learn and retain concepts better and you will find these notes handy when you are in the revision phase.


After each topic is done and dusted, revise. Have a definite process for revision. The timely revision will help you stay on top of your preparation as the topics you have read will stay fresh in your mind. 


 Mock Tests 

Periodically, take mock tests. If you can manage to easily solve the sample papers, it means you are on the right path, or else you will have to put in more effort.


 Time Management 

Time management is everything, in BITSAT. Opt for questions that are idea-based and direct. Rehearse as much as possible in exam conditions to prepare yourself for the actual test. All questions carry equal weightage. So, figure out a way to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Score in your strong areas and leave your weak areas as such.

 Deep understanding of topics 

The BITSAT requires a deep understanding of topics. So, make use of the topics listed above and understand all the subtopics under these topics. Wherever there is scope for application, learn how to apply the concepts you have learned. As you finish a chapter, you need to solve questions associated with the concept. Practicing regularly will help you get real-time tips and feedback! You will figure out your own shortcuts and improve your speed as you can see how much time you are spending on each question. Remember that you have to 150 questions in 3 hours.


The BITSAT is the only major engineering entrance test that has sections on English and logical ability. So, you have an edge there if you are comfortable with these two subjects. This BITSAT English Grammar section broadly focuses on English Language & Comprehension, Vocabulary, Grammar & Spotting errors, Verbs, Grammatical Sentence etc. The exam basically seeks for an analytical and comprehensive approach towards the English Language. So, you might want to read a book or two and go back to board level English syllabus before you write your BITSAT.
